Folan’s Cottage is a beautiful architecturally designed holiday home that was rebuilt in 2010 from two ruined stone cottages.

It is only a few meters from a wonderful quiet sandy beach, with views of the Twelve Bens and across the ocean to the Arann Islands. The setting is magical and remote with just rabbits, sheep and Connemara ponies as your neighbours.

Where you’ll be

Roundstone, Galway, Ireland

The beauty of this area is just breathtaking. The house is right beside a beautiful beach which is almost always deserted because there is no road access. It is safe for swimming and ideal for sand castles and shrimping in local rock pools. There are numerous coastal and hill walks in the immediate area and we are close to the Twelve Bens mountains which have some of the best hiking terrain in the country.
